Hulu’s Adding Tons Of Great Horror Movies In August

While many might subscribe to Hulu to enjoy unwinding by digging into some easy-to-digest sitcoms, the platform has also curated a sizable collection of horror films and TV shows.

While they might not be able to rival Netflix – who recently put out a film so disturbing that some viewers ended up getting sick – the lesser of the streaming giants still manages to hold their own. While they have yet to fully breakthrough in the horror space, the platform is already home to a handful of stellar series such as The Handmaid’s Tale and The Act, both of which picked up a pair of Emmy Award nominations earlier today.

Thankfully, it looks like things are starting to shape up in August, with several horror movies hitting the service. Check out the list below to find out how you can get your spook on next month:

King Of The Hill: The 5 Best (& 5 Worst) Episodes

King of the Hill might not have ever achieved the sort of monumental popularity that The Simpsons, enjoyed, but for 13 seasons, the show chugged away, producing quality episodes and plopping the audience right into the heart of Arlen. Even South Park had to give credit where it was due, showing the King of the Hill staff working tirelessly while Eric Cartman and Bart Simpson duked it out for cartoon superiority.

While it could be considered something of a "red state" show, King of the hill did a great job at skewering all points of view while wearing its Texas-sized heart on its sleeve. This resulted in some hilarious and yet down-to-Earth storylines. While some of them worked beautifully, others just ended up wasting the show's goodwill. These are the 5 best (and 5 worst) episodes of King of the Hill.

After over 230 acting credits, Stephen Root is primed for his first Emmy nomination thanks to ‘Barry’

After over 230 acting credits, Stephen Root is primed for his first Emmy nomination thanks to ‘Barry’
Did you know that Stephen Root, an actor with over 230 credits on his resume, has never received an Emmy nomination? Surprising, I know. But the guy who starred in “NewsRadio” and “King of the Hill” and made countless guest appearances in a slew of other TV favorites (not to mention more than a few movies) has been unrecognized in the awards game thus far. That could change this year with a primo season of “Barry” that has put his performance squarely in the spotlight.

See Emmy spotlight: ‘Barry’ exceeds its strong debut with a killer Season 2

The second year of HBO’s comedy series finds hitman-turned-thespian Barry Berkman (Bill Hader) dealing with the repercussions of murdering Detective Janice Moss (Paula Newsome), who was investigating his nefarious behavior while dating his acting coach, Gene Cousineau (Henry Winkler).

Will ‘Barry’ supporting stars Anthony Carrigan, Stephen Root and Sarah Goldberg share the Emmy spotlight?

Will ‘Barry’ supporting stars Anthony Carrigan, Stephen Root and Sarah Goldberg share the Emmy spotlight?
“Barry” had a great first season at the Emmys. In 2018 it earned 13 nominations and 3 wins, including Best Comedy Actor (Bill Hader) and Best Comedy Supporting Actor (Henry Winkler). But Winkler was the only supporting star who was even nominated. Will his co-stars Anthony Carrigan, Stephen Root and Sarah Goldberg get to share the spotlight in season two? It’s actually quite common for a show to blow up in the supporting categories after first-year snubs.

Even some of the Emmys’ favorite shows didn’t sweep the supporting categories right away. “Sex and the City” scene-stealer Kim Cattrall had to wait until season two for her first nomination, while Cynthia Nixon had to wait until season four and Kristin Davis didn’t get hers until the sixth and final year. “The Office” didn’t get any supporting nominations until its third season in 2007, the year after it won Best Comedy Series.

King Of The Kill: 10 Most Hilarious Hank Hill Quotes

In 1997, we were introduced to Peggy, Bobby, and Hank, the main characters of King of the Hill. The show focused on the adventures of a normal family living in an average little town. Mowing lawns, drinking beer, barbecuing, and rooting for the local sports team are just a few of the typical, even mundane pastimes that the Hills and their neighbors enjoy.

Beneath this normal veneer, however, was a dark and hilarious comic undercurrent that wasn't afraid to tackle serious issues with families, education, and community. Hank Hill, the main character of the show, summed up a few of these issues with his own hilarious views. Here are ten Hank Hill quotes that just killed us.

'Barry's' "Bad Uncle" Stephen Root Is Finally Ready for Emmy Spotlight

'Barry's'
Listening to Stephen Root run through the beats of his 40-year career, one is struck by how mundane it all is, how straightforward. The longtime character and voice actor, best known for playing sad sack Milton in 1999's late-blooming cult classic Office Space and voicing sad sack Bill Dauterive (among others) in long-running Fox animated series King of the Hill, is a living testament to the advice of dads and rappers everywhere: work hard, and success will follow.
